WhatLauraWore: The Forgotten Dress

Purple plus size skater dress

Last weekend, I spent some time in Cheshire with Mr WLL.  We went to the Trafford Centre in Manchester for a little retail therapy and for lunch, we visited some picturesque villages in Cheshire and went out for supper to a lovely Indian restaurant.  It was such a chilled few days and great to spend sometime together.

I packed my things for the trip pretty quickly and while I was rooting around in my wardrobe for another dress, I came across this Lovedrobe dress that still had the tags on.  I remember ordering it last year from New Look or Evans, I can’t remember which but it was one of the two, around the time that I ordered my dress for my graduation.

I love the skater shape of this dress as it is elasticated under the bust and falls in such a flattering way.  The lace detailing at the top is so pretty and makes a beautiful feminine addition to the dress.  I actually have this same dress in black with gold lace detailing, cobalt blue, navy and coral because I love the shape and fit of it so much.

The purple colour of the dress is something a little different for me and looking back at the photos, I actually really like the way that this looks against my hair and skintone, despite the fact that I matched the decor of the restaurant we went to!

I paired it with my studded Primark sandals, a Mikey gold and diamante chain bracelet and diamante hoop earrings and my Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac bag.

I loved wearing this dress and wish I’d worn it sooner!  I’m in the process of clearing out my wardrobe because I want to make space to be able to see, truly appreciate and get my use out of the things that I have.
